Monkey Business

  • Illegal Logging of Rainforest Timber
  • On a tour of a paper dealership, I learned a new term, "Monkey Paper, " which refers to paper that has been made from illegally harvested timber. One of the places where this is seen commonly is the rainforest, particularly in Indonesia where orangutans, elephants, and many other species make their home. This poster was created to bring awareness to designers and the public to be smart about choosing paper and check to see if it is certified by the FSC or GreenSeal to determine if it was harvested legally from forests that are monitored.
